“Words cannot describe our wonderful Wedding party, in Panicale”
My husband and I married in Panicale Town Hall and stayed 4 nights at Villa Tabaccaio. Our Bridal party and immediate family also stayed with us. Our guests were dotted around the countryside! We hosted a big BBQ dinner the night before the wedding at the villa. The wedding reception was celebrated in the beautiful September sun, by the pool, in the grounds and in the Villa. We partied through the night and spent the next day by the pool. What an amazing stay, enjoying the local cuisine, people and weather of Panicale. Katia the Villa Manager was an absolute gem from the moment we inquired till beyond our stay. She is warm and honest and went all out in helping us arrange our wedding whilst we live in London. There is nothing to fault about this big old and beautiful Villa. It has everything one could need for a getaway in the countryside and if you like, for a big party with those closest to you! We cannot wait to return to the villa and to see Katia again! Highly recommended whatever it is you want to do! Thank you so much Katia, Tabaccaio and Panicale!
We spent a lovely week this past June at Antico Tabaccaio with family. The villa is extremely spacious. The first floor living room, dining room, and kitchen are enormous, as are a number of the many bedrooms. And, those that are smaller are still quite large. There is also a very spacious second living room area on the second floor. The house has been beautifully renovated, combining its centuries old Umbrian charm with modern amenities, including plentiful bathrooms. The countryside surrounding the house consists of beautiful fields of some wheat-type grain and huge swaths of sunflowers (which, unfortunately for us, were not yet open during our early-season stay there). Panicale is a lovely, classic Umbrian hill town, with several nice and delicious restaurants and piazza with a few cafes with outdoor tables from which you can take in the slow-paced scene. There are a number of food shops where you can get fresh bread, vegetables, cheese, meat, etc. It is a 5 minute drive from the house. It's possible to walk, but it is a good 40 minute, uphill climb. Katia, the villa's owner, lives nearby and enough cannot be said about her hospitality and warmth. She truly welcomes you as family. Her gracious and warm welcome goes a long way toward making you feel at home at the house -- and in Panicale in general. Her family has lived there for generations, she knows everyone, and can help you navigate any issue, arrange a reservation for you at a restaurant in town -- or a home-cooked Umbrian meal at the villa by Nonna Rosanna, who arrived at the house with all the makings for a festive dinner. Topping it off was the chance to help her roll and form the homemade ravioli that was just one part of the meal. It was finished with her amazing homemade tiramisu! The swimming pool was a lovely amenity. The outdoor table and seating area next to the tobacco house was the setting for a candle lit dinner one night that felt straight out of a movie set in the Italian countryside. There are lots of other interesting nearby towns to visit. Day-trips to Perugia, Siena, and Montelpuciano are all within reach. All in all, a beautifully maintained home, in a magical setting, with a host about whom one can't say enough. Fantastico! We hope to return one day!
“Excellent villa in a beautiful location”
We were three families holidaying in this wonderful villa with our children, ages 9-16. The kids loved the pool and us adults enjoyed soaking up the Umbrian sun in the well-maintained gardens. We explored the local area-Montepulciano, Isla Maggiore and Castiglione del Lago (market Wednesday am). We also did Siena on the train. Would have liked to have done more,but a week is not enough. Katia was such a welcoming host,nothing was too much trouble. Thank you very much Katia, hope to see you in a year or two!
“Fantastic villa in a beautiful location”
We were a group of 8 people staying in this beautiful farmhouse villa. The villa exceeded our high expectations. There is lots of space and very comfortable. Everyone from our group said that they would like to return in the future. The indoors and outdoor space is fantastic. The area and village of Panicale are absolutely gorgeous. Every direction you look is breathtaking and the locals are so friendly and welcoming. We were very thankful to Katia who manages the property. She was able to give us lots of information and was more than happy to help us with anything we needed. She made everything very easy. We would certainly recommend this villa and a holiday in this beautiful location.
“Capodanno a Panicale”
Abbiamo soggiornato dal 28/12/13 al 05/01/14 in questa bellissima villa eravamo in 14 adulti e 3 bambini , ci siamo trovati molto bene in quanto la villa era molto funzionale sia per gli adulti che per i bambini. Infatti nella realtà supera le aspettative delle foto che sono pubblicate. Le camere erano spaziose e pulite , gli ambienti comuni erano molto accoglienti . Il consiglio che possiamo dare al proprietario è di far rivedere il camino in quanto faceva un po' di fumo! Comunque il soggiorno è stato fantastico ci siamo divertiti tanto e facciamo un particolare ringraziamento a Katia per la sua gentilezza e disponibilità dimostrata nei nostri confronti. Speriamo di ritornarci presto!
“Paradise under the Umbrian sun”
Our holiday in Panicale was expected. We were there last year and came back home delighted. Therefore, this year with a large group we went to Panicale again. Katia previous house manager recommended us villa antico tabaccaio. Pictures does not fully reflect what house offers. Our group of 13 had found here, privacy, amenities which help our relaxation and simple beauty. Thehouse is perfect for groups of friends with children. The only drawback is that you do not want to leave it. Beautiful view of Panicale, setting around field of sunflowers and vineyard gives unique charm. In a large kitchen with Nona Rossana we were preparing Italian dishes. Panicale and nearby towns are comely. This was not our first stay in Umbria and Panicale however Katia recommendations let us know the area from the new perspective. On our arrival - late arrival- Katia feed our fridge and made ??sure we had enough to eat and drink. Katya was always helpful and discreet presence when needed. She helped us in case of collisions on the road. Back to Panicale is only a matter of time. Thank you Katia
“Best house ever!”
Best house ever! We went with two family's, together 9 persons.We all enjoyed it equally, parents and children (also teenagers!!). Beautiful property with magnificent garden. Very open and spacious and everywhere sunflowers! Inside the house it is big but still cosy. There are plenty of rooms and more than enough bathrooms. Everything is there to use such as towels,cleaning products,napkins,tablecloths... The "house lady" Katia is very friendly and took care of everything we needed. The area is really stoning with nearby the most enchanting villages! We will come back for sure!!!
Check: Villa: Excellent ! Panicale: Excellent ! Katia (and husband):Excellent.! Ondanks het feit dat de foto's op de site al een schitterend verblijf voorspelden, overtrof de realiteit al onze verwachtingen. Alle voorzieningen waren aanwezig, zoals ook vermeld op de site. De villa was ruim, koel en comfortabel. Als er eens iets ontbrak (parasol, tuinstoel, ..) stond Katia klaar om ons uit de nood te helpen. Zij verstrekte ons de nodige informatie; leverde ons de goede wijn, olijfolie en hielp ons uit de nood (id kaart verloren). De streek is ronduit prachtig. De villa ligt in een oase van rust (landbouwgronden,...) en natuur. Dit betekent ook dat je geen schrik mag hebben van een kikkertje in het zwembad of een duizendpoot in de slaapkamer. Een uiltje op de vensterbank en een kikkerconcert 's avonds maken het verblijf uniek! Panicale en Paciano bieden voldoende restaurants en terrasjes, wat maakt dat je niet te ver moet rijden om ook van de plaatselijke gastronomie te genieten. Castiglione del Lago is het eerste grotere stadje in de buurt, waar je je inkopen kan doen. Umbria heeft ons hart (nogmaals) gestolen. Hier komen we zeker terug. Viva Italia, Viva Umbria, Viva Katia.
“Outstanding villa! La dolce vita!”
Wow! This villa, a gorgeously restored farmhouse, was the perfect home base for our 2-month back roads adventure! Drove down a gravel lane, past sunflower fields & vineyards & poppies... saw the lights of both Panicale & Paciano at night from the master bedroom windows... Super quiet & comfy beds (& great bedding!) so we all slept really well... living room areas on both floors so we could spread out... prepared delicious feasts in the kitchen... ate at the farmhouse table inside & also outside on the patio next to the former tobacco drying "shed" (it's a beautiful brick structure!)... splashed around in the sparkling pool... wish we never had to leave! And dear Katia, the villa rental manager, was a dream... readily available & with great suggestions... she really makes the experience unforgettable! I've rented several other properties, and Katia is the best!!! Some of her suggestions: dinners at the nearby agriturismo La Querciolana - a must do! (come hungry, it's a fabulous 6-course meal!)... we learned how to make authentic Umbrian lasagna (with olive oil Béchamel sauce & meat sauce)... saw gorgeous lace made by a local Panicale woman... had a "Nonna" come to the farmhouse several times to prepare exquisite meals (where we helped make the ravioli!)... ate at all the Panicale restaurants (great meals everywhere!) & 2 outdoor cafes... great focaccia & apricot crostadas at the local Panicale bakery... delicious meal out on the terrace at Il Casale in Paciano... the few shops in Panicale have beautiful Umbrian linens & ceramics/pottery). We took day trips to assisi, Orvieto & Civita di Bagnoregio, Deruta, Citta della Pieve, Torgiano, Montefalco, Spoleto, Castiglione del Lago... & Cortona, Montepulciano, & Siena. The locals in Panicale are very warm & welcoming... & a few speak English (though it's fun to speak Italian!). Highly recommend staying here at antico Tabaccaio if you want an unforgettable vacation off the beaten track, but near so much!
“Living in a dream”
We stay for a week in this fantastic villa, very quiet and confortable. We enjoy visiting Panicale and all the places nearby (this is a strategic position for visiting Florence, Rome, Perugia, Assisi...) and having fun and relax in the pool. There is a lot of privacy and we love it. Katiuscia, the girl who manage the house, is so kind and gentle and always attentive to all the needs. We hope we can come back next year!
